An Advent calendar signed by Tiffany: instead of chocolates there are jewels ♦ ︎
In many countries the habit of Advent calendars has spread. They are cardboard panels that indicate the 24 days remaining at Christmas. The calendar stops the day before. These calendars have spread from German-speaking countries. They are usually dedicated to children: from 1920 the windows indicating the days hide a little chocolate. The habit of these calendars was then extended to all European countries and to the United States. This year, however, you can buy a special one. And a bit expensive: it’s sold for $ 110,000.
The idea is of Tiffany, who prepared a large Advent calendar of 1.20 meters. The calendar depicts the flagship store on Fifth Avenue and contains, of course, objects signed by the American Maison. That’s why the price doesn’t justify the chocolates. For example, in the calendar you will find a Tiffany cup in sterling silver, a T True bracelet in 18k yellow gold and a Tiffany Smile pendant in 18k rose gold with diamonds. There are 24 pieces in all, enclosed separately in the classic Tiffany blue boxes. However, the calendar will only be available in some stores of the Maison. Lavinia Andorno
